Student Rights and Responsibilities

The Bylaws of the Board of Regents protect the rights of each member of the University community. Each individual has the right to be treated with respect and dignity and each has the right to learn. With these rights comes the responsibility of each individual to maintain an atmosphere in which others may exercise their human rights and their right to learn. Chapter V of the Bylaws fully delineates the rights and responsibilities of students.

General Procedures for Appeals of Academic Evaluations

In accordance with Section 5.3 of the Bylaws of the Board of Regents, the University of Nebraska Medical Center has established a grade appeal procedure which students should follow if they feel their academic progress has been evaluated unfairly. A summary of this procedure may be found in the UNMC Student Wiki and the College of Dentistry Operations Manual.

General Procedures for Student Discipline
